“For you are a holy people to the LORD your God; the LORD your God has chosen you to be a people for Himself, a special treasure above all the peoples on the face of the earth.” Deuteronomy 7:6

Relationships come with responsibility. G-D would tell the children of Israel “You shall be holy, for I the LORD your God am holy.” What does it mean to be holy, does it mean being perfect? When you look in Torah, we find from the very beginning that we have all sinned, all fell short of being perfect, yet G-D still called them by name and used them in mighty ways… so being holy does not
mean being perfect in the sense of never doing something wrong.
Holy means to be set apart, to live for and to serve Him. To really love him with…”all our heart, with all your mind and with all your soul,” not to just give Him lip service. It means not just going through the motions so other people who can’t see our hearts will say “they are holy.” If we are one of His, then we need to act like it and not act like everyone else. If we do not fulfill this responsibility, are we not taking the name of our L-RD G-D in vain?
